Rugby-Barrett brothers star as nine-try All Blacks maul Canada

    OITA, Japan, Oct 2 (Reuters) - All three Barrett brothers
got on the scoresheet as reigning champions New Zealand stormed
to their second victory of the Rugby World Cup with a 63-0 bonus
point mauling of Canada at Oita Stadium on Wednesday. 
    The All Blacks defied the humid conditions to cross four
times in the first half and added five more after the break to
move into second place behind Italy in Pool B with matches
against Namibia and the Italians to come. 
    Although a long way from their record World Cup win - a
145-17 thrashing of Japan in 2007 - it was only the second time
New Zealand had shut out an opponent at the World Cup after
their 40-0 defeat of Scotland in 2007.    
    Winger Jordie and his fullback brother Beauden crossed in
the first half with the third sibling, lock Scott, scoring his
try after the break as the Barretts became the first trio of
brothers to play for New Zealand at a World Cup.
